The first cartoon series to ever feature a rock and roll group, it immediately became a hit with a 13 score and a 52 per cent share in ratings. Based loosely on the characters of the Beatles as portrayed in their film, A Hard Day's Night, each half hour program consisted of two cartoons (each approximately 8-10 minutes long) and two singalong segments stuck in-between the two episodes.
    Though the Beatles never took part in the creation and production of the show, save for the fact that their original music was used, the series still remains a favorite among fans who can remember getting up and eating a bowl of cereal while watching it. And thanks to MTV, Disney (who both aired the show sometime around the late 80's early 90's) and bootlegged copies, the show is continuing to enjoy an ever growing number of fans.

    Theme Song

    You tell me that you've got everything you want
    And your bird can sing
    But you don't get me, you don't get me
    You say you've seen seven wonders and your bird is green
    But you can't see me, you can't see me
    When your prized possessions start to wear you down
    Look in my direction, I'll be round, I'll be round
    When your bird is broken will it bring you down
    You may be awoken, I'll be round, I'll be round
    You tell me that you've heard every sound there is
    And your bird can swing
    But you can't hear me, you can't hear me
